Product Description

This book offers a critical analyses of the view of Ernst Troeltsch and Karl Barth regarding Christian faith and history. Toeltsch and Barth approached theology from seemingly antithetical viewpoints. Troeltsch was a philosopher of history who sought religious understanding in the social and culture manifestations of Christianity. Karl Barth was a dogmatic theologian who rigorously shielded his deliberations from all but strictly theological considerations.

Ogeltree seeks to identify overlapping interests in the writings of these two authors and to suggest a broader framework of understanding that constructively combines the insights of both.

Christian Faith and History: A Critical Comparison of Ernst Troeltsch and Karl Barth will speak meaningfully to the reader in view of the ongoing interest in Barthian theology and the revival of the quest for thew historical Jesus. In order to highlight the views of Troeltsch and Barth, Ogeltree gives special attention to their respective treatments of the historical study of Jesus, thus making a significant contribution to this area of study.
